Register of Deeds

Corona Virus/COVID-19 Update:  

May 4, 2021

1. Recording Real Estate Documents. We highly encourage electronic recording of all documents. Anyone who wishes to record documents in person should call the office for an appointment. Those who mail in documents or E-Record will not see any change in operations.

2. Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates. All certified copies of birth, death and marriage certificates are available for purchase online or by mail. To access the online portal or print the mail in request form please visit our web page located on the left.

3. Marriage Licenses and Notary Oaths. Throughout this North Carolina State of Emergency, marriage licenses and notary oaths will be available by appointment only. Since this service must be in person, we ask that applicants only come in at the scheduled time. We encourage marriage applicants to utilize the online application available on the marriage web page on the left to expedite the process. Only the two marriage applicants are permitted to enter the office.

Appointments can be made by calling our office at 336-849-7904 during normal business hours. Please feel free to call our office with any questions.

We are committed to providing services in a safe yet effective way for the duration of this situation. These plans are subject to change as the situation evolves. For the most up to date information on all Yadkin County services, please go to our county website at https://www.yadkincountync.gov/
